Winnings From All About Cards Contest

On February 6, I won the grand prize in a contest held by All About Cards. I won 8 boxes of cards. Since I won, I've opened four of the boxes. I opened the  2010 Topps National Chicle box. You can see what I pulled here.

I have also opened the  2010 Topps Update box. From that I just happened to pull a Dodger. It was a Rafael Furcal All-Star Game used jersey.

The next box I opened was the 2011 PressPass box. The one hit I got was a Jeff Gordon Tradin' Paint Race Used Sheet Metal card. I don't know much about NASCAR, but I do know who Jeff Gordon is. This card is so thick, it barely fit in the scanner. If anyone is interested, it's up for trade.

The fourth box I opened was the 2010-2011 Panini Prestige box. I was guaranteed 2 autograph cards and 2 memorabilia cards. I actually got 3 autograph cards: an Al-Farouq Aminu rookie 44/296, a Devin Ebanks rookie logo patch 476/499, and a Jeremy Lin rookie 193/199. Since I collect Lakers and Clippers autographs, I'm keeping the Aminu and Ebanks. The Lin is up for trade if anyone wants it.

I also pulled two jersey cards: Jose Calderon Prestigious Pros game-used swatch 316/499 and a Tayshaun Prince Franchise Favorites game-used swatch 8/49. Both are available for trade.

Here's the Panini Box break:

Once again, I want to thank All About Cards. Stay tuned, I have four more boxes to break.


  1. Dude, my break is coming up soon. I'm down to help break the rest of the boxes at some point then if you want.

    And I might have to find something for that Prince patch haha.

  2. Greg - The Prince is yours. Come on down, we'll break a couple boxes. I might open one of the four tonight...if I'm not too tired.

  3. My break is the week of the 21st. We'll e-mail and figure out a day and what not.

  4. Sick breaks! Hopefully you pull something for my PCs in your last 4 boxes.

  5. Might be interested in that Lin...

  6. Are No - It's yours. Don't worry about anything. i have a couple of other cards to send you.

    Jesse - Thanks! I'm gonna break the last four very soon. Two football and two hockey boxes left.

  7. Sounds Good Josh! Pull me a Mike Williams or Matt Ryan.

  8. Jesse -Let me see what I can do.
